Can I have IE7 and IE8 installed at the same time and able to use both? Some people would not use IE8 unless they know how and I would have to 'explore' it, so I can explain it and let them use IE7 in the meantime. I believe IE8 has a completely different interface and no menu bar which could be a bit daunting to new users. I don't want to install IE8 to find IE7 has disappeared. Can I use both or just one or the other? Thanks for reading and in advance for any help offered. hedley

Not much of running these standalone, but here are a few links for some reading. Also another info that IE9 is in the works.
But this answer would have to be for another tech to answer because I have never tryed to run them both on 1 pc.

Hi Hedley93

I believe IE8 has a completely different interface and no menu bar which could be a bit daunting

on IE 8 if you want the menu bar just press the Alt key...and it will appear ..if you want to keep it permanently just right click on it and select "menu"
There's very little difference between the IE7 and interfaces (nothing that should take longer than a minute or so to become familiar with)...however IE8 has superior security...(compared with IE7)

When you install IE8, IE7 is no longer accessible. It's still there, just not usable. If you then uninstall IE8, IE7 will be usable again.

Thanks for that Ztrucker. If there isn't much difference in the interface I guess it can be learned easy enough. Thanks again for the help. :thumbup: hedley
